I’ve long been a fan of B-horror movies. Sometimes, the worse it is, the better it is. “Blood Orgy of the She-Devils,” anyone? 🙂 So when I had the opportunity to submit a story for an anthology dedicated to the genre, I jumped at it, and I am honored my story was accepted.
As I was writing this story, I was thinking of some movies where something typically viewed as innocuous ends up being quite deadly. Now, I’m not talking about children, which has been pretty overdone but is still effective if done well. I was thinking more like “Killer Klowns From Outer Space,” which was released between when Stephen King introduced us to Pennywise but before the TV series lured our culture down a dark gutter. Or even “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.” You get the idea.
So I picked something I have been fascinated with for a long time and actually got to hold while on a cruise to Honduras in 2018: sloths. They’re so cute and so adorable and so slooooooooooooow. What I did with them, well, you’ll just have to read the story. 🙂
This anthology contains many amazing stories that all harken back to the glory days of B-horror movies, as each author takes a different tack when approaching the theme. And, as always, there are some stories I read and mutter to myself, “I wish I’D thought of that.” 🙂
So check out “Savage B’s: A Tribute to B-Horror” (affiliate link) now. It’s a great, fun read that will have you strolling down the memory lane of classic B-horror.
